a meetup

The girls and I visited the People's History Museum in Manchester today.  It was an event organised by blogs up north, a group of very lovely blogging Mums.  

The girls where very well behaved in the car.  What should have taken 45 mins ended up taking 2 hours, but I was very proud of my girls.  My youngest slept the whole way and my eldest and I played 'I spy' and sang lots of songs.  Even when we entered Manchester and got very badly lost, mainly down to road closures, the girls behaved.  So we arrived a little bit late, something I always hate doing, especially when I left with plenty of time.

The People's History Museum is a very interactive hands on museum, the kind of museum I like as I believe children learn best though play.  My eldest was given a bee back pack which contained some 'I spy' cards.  These were great for spotting different things as we walked around.  We pretended to be like 'Mr.Tumble' as he always has a picture of an item he has to find.  My youngest took a shine to the magnifying glass in there and my eldest loved the binoculars

Scattered around the museum are various boxes which contain items relating to a person in history.  This gives you the chance to dress up and have a bit of fun learning about people history.

The girls had a lot of fun exploring the museum and I enjoyed meeting in person some lovely blogging mums.

The journey home took an impressive 3 and half hours due to several accidents and traffic works but the girls had had so much fun they slept the whole time
